Your letter to the bugman: Hi, Danny!! Gordy found this bug on his window screen. It looks prehistoric! I hope you can tell us what it is! Not a very good pic I know ;(
How you want your letter signed: Kerry Morgan
Kerry Joyce Morgan, how nice to hear from you.
This sure looks like a Spotted Apatelodes, Apatelodes torrefacta, a moth found in much of the eastern United States. According to BugGuide it is: “An odd-looking species, easily mistaken for a sphinx moth.” I just booked a ticket and I will be in Campbell from late July until late August. Stop by for a visit. Say hi to your brother.
